Locked out of your WordPress blog?

By | December 8, 2007

I woke up this morning and found that I couldn’t post anything to my WordPress blogs. Neither MarsEdit or the web interface worked. I kept getting a 403 error.

As it turns out, the problem wasn’t with WordPress or MarsEdit. It was with the WordPress plugin, Bad Behavior.

Bad Behavior was updated two days ago, to v2.0.11, to fix the problem. You’ll want to grab the update ASAP if you’re a Bad Behavior user. [ full details ]

I had a similar problem with my blog, except that whilst people could visit the blog – Commenting would result in a 403 error and the commenter receiving a support key. It took me 24hrs to realise that there was a new version of BB out.

Bad Behavior flagged my IP and wouldn’t let me send you a comment via your contact form yesterday. Very annoying :/ (much like Darren’s issue)
